Maybe Marty Friedman had joined Metallica, or Kirk Hammett was the guy in Motley Crue...Steve Vai had given up the solo career to join Pantera?  Randy Rhodes was playing his leads for Arch Enemy?

Check Out Living Colour’s Rig Rundowns – The Most Complicated Setups EVER

The coolest thing about YouTube is the access we now have to guitar stuff.  Rig rundowns, guitar lessons, gear reviews where we can actually hear the stuff...and you can see how your favorite guitar players get the sounds they get!

And, of course, the lovely Rebecca Dirks.  Although she seems to have disappeared from all the recent Rig Rundowns.  I'm sad.

Check out this RR she did with the guys in Living Colour.  Not only are they great players, they perform at such a high level while navigating the most complicated setups I've ever seen!

Jerry Cantrell and William DuVall of Alice in Chains Show Their Guitar Gear [Video]

My fetish for guitar gear and band rig rundowns continues.  I can't help it.  I like the gear, I want some (okay most) of the guitars, I even want some of the amps!  It's always cool to troll through YouTube looking for new rig rundowns as they pop up.
